To attract buyers of real estate, sellers of new buildings are ready to offer buyers a bonus - a finishing finish.
What should I look for so that I do not have to spend extra money?
Buy an apartment in a new building with a fine finishIt is possible at a price not much higher than the same apartment without it. The advantages of such a purchase are obvious - do not waste money, time and energy for repairs. Also, in a brand new apartment with a finished finish, you can move right there, as soon as the apartment is transferred to the buyer and the property rights are formalized. It is also important that when the house is rented with decoration, you do not have to tolerate noise from neighbors who make a big redevelopment or some very long and complicated repairs.
But during the acceptance of the apartment in a new building with finishing it is necessary to pay attention to some important things, so that later do not spend money and effort on correcting the shortcomings of the builders.
1. Walls, floor and ceiling. We check accordingly their horizontality and verticality. Painted should be all neat, without irregularities, spots. The wallpaper is pasted without bubbles, the pattern is the same. Linoleum also without bubbles and waves. Tiles - without chips and seams of the same size. Laminate without voids, gaps.
2. All doors and windows are mounted neatly, close tightly. There are no defects on frames, door leafs.
3. The plumbing is installed neatly, the seams are tight, nothing flows, does not fall. Do not hesitate to turn the water off and on as long as necessary to check the quality of the wiring.
4. The gas in the cooker is connected and the cooker operates normally. The gas pipe is neat, the gas flows evenly, without flares, damping. If the cooker is provided electrical, do not forget to check the operation of each burner, the oven lighting.
5. Wiring is done neatly. In each outlet there is a voltage (you can check with a test or a small table lamp that you can take with you).
6. Do not forget to also check ventilation (carry feather, thread, strip of thin paper to ventilation ducts).
7. All counters must be installed and operated.
You can not hesitate to check everything very meticulously, because the quality of your construction and finishing works depends on the quality of your life. All the defects the developer must eliminate at his own expense!
